An 18 year old student at the University of Alabama was arrested for filing a false rape report yesterday. Emma Mannion had told police that two men had forced her into a jeep Cherokee around 2 am yesterday, according to College Candy.
Tuscaloosa County’s Metro Homicide Captain, Gary Hood, stated that authorities had checked through the video surveillances and interviewed witnesses that might’ve seen this incident occur. Nothing was found to support her allegations. They brought this information back to her, informing her about a lack of evidence found. Soon after, Mannion had admitted that her original story had been made up.
Hood did not disclose why the 18 year old had lied. He ” credited the abundance of surveillance cameras throughout the area, located both on and off campus, for getting her to confess. “It disputed what she told us early on,” he said, referring to the surveillance footage.”
